In single level laminectomy only a small incision is needed while in multilevel laminectomy 3-4 inch incision is needed.  In traditional surgery a retractor is needed to spread the muscles apart to expose vertebras. Then a portion of lamina is removed to uncover the elastic like ligament. Next, the surgeon cuts an opening in the to reach the spinal canal. Once the compressed nerve can be seen, the cause of nerve compression can be identified. The surgeon gently retracts the nerve, and the source of the compression is removed—the pressure on the spinal nerve or nerve components is relieved.
